Faulty ductwork is responsible for leaking hundreds of cubic feet of conditioned air out of your Estero, FL, home. The leaks require professional sealing using Aeroseal, which helps reduce air loss by as much as 95%, according to Energy.gov’s interview with a researcher who helped develop it. This guide answers the most frequently asked questions about Aeroseal and its benefits.
What Is Aeroseal?
Aeroseal is a patented technology used to seal faulty ductwork and improve the efficiency of your air conditioner. It consists of long molecules of polymers that bind together to seal your leaking ducts. It uses tiny synthetic nanoparticles manufactured to fit together and block air from escaping.
How Long Does It Last?
For starters, Aeroseal comes with a 10-year warranty and can last much longer, according to information on its website. Aeroseal will exceed the lifespan of other sealants such as mastic and tapes. Additionally, its warranty ensures that you get service in case of any possible failures.
Does It Produce Odor?
Although Aeroseal produces a mild odor at the time of application, it completely dissipates after a few hours. We know your household’s safety is a top priority. If a family member has allergies or asthma, they can plan to leave for a few hours until the smell dissipates.
Aeroseal is safe to use. Its ingredients are in chewing gum and hairspray. It’s certified by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration as a nontoxic product.
What Are the Benefits of Using Aeroseal?
When ducts develop holes or misalignments, they leak the conditioned air, forcing your system to work harder than it should. When this happens, air pollutants invade your home and lower the air quality. They also lead to expensive monthly bills and reduced comfort levels.
With Aeroseal, you get to seal the leaks and enjoy cleaner and healthier air. You also reduce your energy wastage.
If your energy bills have increased recently, it could be due to leaking ducts. For more information about Aeroseal duct sealing, contact our team at Certified Heating and Cooling Inc.
